Iron is an essential component to our diet and some might need it even more than others. An obvious thought one might have when considering iron rich foods is meats. This is true, what other foods are packed with iron as well? If red meat, pork or poultry are not items that you consume you can still get your iron from other foods.
These foods include seafood, beans, dark leafy vegetables (like spinach), dried fruit (such as raisins and apricots), iron fortified cereals, breads, and pastas, and peas. All of these foods can provide the essential iron every person needs in their diet in one form or another.
